    My Car Kit

    I watched a video a few years ago, a guy was telling us he and his mate were in landrover discoverys, the road in front was flooded, he explained it was usually a little stream about 9 foot below the road. They stopped and assessed the area and then decided to drive through the flood as it only...

    My Car Kit

    Paul B, I wish I could have a more relaxed attitude like yours as in ill figure things out when / if something happends. Since having my kids I've become probably way over protective, Whilst I can't protect my family from every given senario and let them have a quality life, I try to mittigate...

    My Car Kit

    l Alan, not sure about others, however, for us it sounds a great idea, but the inital financial outlay is just way outside of our buget currently, That's not to say that we wont start allocating funds so we can purchase one, one day. Nomad64, Thank you for reminding me of this, as this is...

    My Car Kit

    I was reading the thread Ready made kit for Car travel? & it got me thinking about the kit I carry in my car. This is the stuff I carry every day, its stowed in our car, either to be forgotten about until needed or used regularly. Anyway, here’s a breakdown of my complete kit. I hope it will...
